The city of canals, romantic alleys, and medieval beauty, Venice is a dream destination on everyone's bucket list. This Murano Glass sculpture presents the glass artists' take on the most iconic Venetian sight, the gondola. This black Venetian boat uniquely fit for shallow and narrow local waterways has not changed for centuries, and is a sight to behold when you travel to Venice. Crafted by hand in a prominent family-owned Murano Glass factory, this blown Murano Glass gondola features elegant black body and 24K gold details, including the ferro and forcola (front and back embellishments), the oar of the gondolier, and the mooring poles. This Murano Glass gondola sculpture makes a gorgeous unique gift to those who love Venice and treasure romantic memories.
  • Measurements: the gondola measures about 10 inches in length and the maximum height is about 4-1/2 inches.
  • This gondola figurine is handmade in a traditional Murano workshop by an artisan family that has been making Murano Glass for generations. It is a true work of art and comes with the Certificate Of Authenticity.
  • The gondola is well packaged to avoid damage in transit.
  • Because each Murano Glass piece is a unique work of art made by hand, some variations of colors and patterns are possible.

Workmanship



Lampworking technique of glass-making, which dates back to ancient Egypt, was revived by Murano glass artisans around the fourteenth century. This technique is based on heating up a blob of glass under a small flame from a lamp or a torch until it reaches malleable state, then blowing and using simple tools or just hands to create various forms and designs. Lampworking allows the artisan's creativity to blossom, as copper sparkles, various minerals, and pieces of glass cane are fused together in this process to create rich colors and imaginative patterns that are always unique. Murano Glass masters often use lampworking method to create small jewelry, such as pendants, earrings, or rings, as well as keychains, barrettes, pillboxes, and figurines.
